    ZMF Pendant by Ampsandsound; impressions, tube-rolling, and general discussions

    They are supposed to arrive today. If they do, I will have one fired up tonight. I have not tried a TungSol 12au7 yet. I do have 2 different 12BH7’s. A grey plate that is unremarkable and a black plate that is excellent. I decided to change out the Ken-Rad and went back to the Brimar...

    Just picked up a pair of Tungsol black glass 12au7. They look interesting…..

    I noticed the glass was thicker and overall heavier than my other other EL84s.

    My uncle had a box of old tubes in his basement. My grandfather used to fix TVs. This was in the box. It looks brand new. Nothing great in the box. A perfect condition GE and Tungsol 12xx7. I was hoping to find a real treasure, but didn't. I'll look at reflector tubes. Thanks!

    I have a black plate TungSol 12BH7 arriving today. I’ll compare to the grey plate I already have and report back.

    Rogue Audio RH-5 Impression Thread

    Just wanted to give the RH-5 a little love. I’m rocking the RH-5 with a set of 1952 GE/KenRad pewter plates. I’m kinda stuck on Ken-Rad tubes at the moment. Not feeling a need to try anything else.

    While waiting for the video update, we’ll just have to suffer and listen to our Pendants…. That’s suffering I’m willing to endure 😅 My wallet can’t handle all the new products on the horizon! I haven’t even started recovering from the Atrium purchase yet. So worth the money though. My Auteur...

    I put the Ken-Rad 12BH7 back in. These 2 tubes have a completely different presentation. I'm listening to Nora Jones Come Away with Me via Roon. This Ken-Rad sound stage is super wide with each instrument in it's own place. HIGHLY detailed sound. I can distinctly hear the bass guitar...

    It appears @Wes S has not depleted the world’s supply of Tung Sol 12BH7’s. I found one, a 1954. I didn’t hesitate this time Wes. Wasn’t giving you a chance to snatch it away! Will have some fun comparing my current favorite to the incoming Ken-Rad and Tung Sol 12BH7’s.

    I'm listening to my "new" 1952 GE's right now! I need to plug the new ZMF Atrium. These headphones sound simply amazing. Looking forward to a closed back version.
